…one could ask in what way modern Romania is influenced by their Dacian ancestors, what is the link between the ancient Hittites and the nation-state of Kemal, or where in modern Albania one could see a trace of the noble Illyrians. Troy would not have been discovered by the Turks, who did not care a damn about it, nevertheless it has become since a powerful symbolic resource for the country. In a way, antiquity is like oil: a western company discovers it, then young nation-states nationalize it and start selling it back to the West.

Из очень интересной статьи Ивайлы Дичева "Эрос идентичности". Статью (по-английски) горячо рекомендую.
